Shot of the Day #58

This is one of my favourite panoramas of the trip, because it includes everything about the desert outback of Australia. I woke up early to make it to the Olgas lookout, unfortunately not as early as the campers that had taken the prime position on the corner, but I managed to get this wide angle panorama of The Olgas/Kata Tjuta to the left and Ayers Rock/Uluru very faint on the horizon to the right of the Sun. I uncovered some of the detail in the shadows with Camera Raw Photoshop and stitched the fifteen photographs in jpeg format – my computer couldn’t handle the huge raw files of 206mb!

Shot of the Day #57

Alice Springs was named after the waterhole ‘Alice Spring’ that was named after the wife of Sir Charles Todd (the Postmaster – as the town was originally a Telegraph Station). This photograph is a stitched panorama of two images – my polariser was able emphasise the reflections on the waters surface and create a more vibrant look to the overall photo.

Shot of the Day #56

I attempted a ‘HDR’ like image in Photoshop’s Camera Raw and it turned out to be very handy in manipulating my photograph into a better quality image than I would have produced if I used Photomatix (in my opinion)! If you look closely at the screenshots of my before and after the level of noise is very minimal in the shadows in particular and I would have a massive amount of noise after processing a raw in Photomatix!

Shot of the Day #55

Uluru is the largest rock in the world and it is always interesting to compare the size – I don’t think I gave a fair representation of the size in this photograph, however the 2-3cm rock in the foreground is 2.1km from Uluru!

My Red Centre Video – Photographs

Here is a video of all my 1,750 photographs combined along with a couple of clips from on the plane. I made this in iMovie as you may recognise from all the flashy text effects :P and I’ve sped up each frame to 1/5 of a second so you can view my journey over the short five days in a quick snippet. The music is Holiday by Dizzee Rascal (produced by Calvin Harris) – Hip-Hop style and perfect for the fast flow of photos.
